The Inner West is the proud birthplace of Australian multiculturalism, fostered on the land of the Gadigal and Wangal peoples.

Project background

Our suburbs are home to people from across the world and we can proudly celebrate the success of our diverse, inclusive and harmonious community.

Still, racism exists in every community and continues to limit access to opportunity and full participation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

Project details

After the continued success of the Racism Not Welcome campaign within the Inner West,

Council is developing an Anti-Racism Strategy that will:

  • Raise awareness of racism.
  • Identify, support, and foster programs that reduce racism and promote inclusion.
  • Further empower our community to confront and eliminate racism.

How to have your say

Join us in shaping a more inclusive Inner West by sharing your experiences of racism. Your voice is the key to building a safer, more welcoming, and more inclusive community.
